liberals. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. senate republicans and two turned coat democrats are standing in the way of creating millions of americans' jobs. late tuesday night the senate stopped the american jobs bill dead in its tracks. the 99% i think have every reason in the world to be out on the streets after this vote. washington is completely dysfunctional because elected officials, they are brain dead to what the american people really want and need. it's no wonder that congress has a record low approval rating of 13%. not a single republican voted to fund schools, build roads, or give middle class americans a freaking tax break. just a little tax break. freshman democratic senator john tester along with sellout ben nelson voted against taxing millionaires in their back yard of montana and nebraska respectively. nelson didn't vote for the $447 billion package because quote, it represents billions of dollars in new spending and more taxes. you know, that reminds me of the old bullet point. we got to hold it right there, folks. this is the, i thin

questions. the first one is, i keep hearing on the news how greece and spain are broke and the u.s. is broke and this city does not have any money and this person does not have any money. i don't understand. there's only so many dollars in the world, so much money. if we don't have it and everybody else does not have it, where it isn't? -- where is it? next question is i would like to know why are republicans continually trying to take away from the poor, the middle class, the elderly, and giving more and more to the wealthy? guest: interesting problem. that's a point to be a big problems for whoever the republican nominee is. most people in this country believe, whether it is true or not, that the republicans by 70% are in favor of the wealthy. and that they work for big corporations. i happen to us think that is true. the four right-wing justices in the supreme court field at a corporation has the same rights as people. try to get rid of medicare and all that. a problem for republicans is people may not like barack obama because it has been a tough four years. they like him personally, but

in the end game. dan rivers is in tripoli, joining us, fran townsend, bob bear. here's what we know about the dictator's demise. we now know why pro-gadhafi forces fought so hard to keep control of gadhafi's home town of sirte. he might have been hiding there since the capital of tripoli fell two months ago. revolutionary fighters closed in on sirte this morning, reportedly unaware that the colonel was there. gadhafi boarded a convoy and attempted to flee. his convoy was disabled as it sped out of sirte. nato officials say they were unaware that they were firing on the former leader. gadhafi and a handful of bodyguards survived and took refuge in this drainage pipe underneath the road. they were surrounded by revolutionary fighters and they wrote the place of the rat on the outside. someone said, my master is here, he was reportedly to see gadhafi. he told the bbc the colonel simply looked up at him and said, don't shoot. this cell phone video taken shortly before his death shows gadhafi injured, but captured alive by fighters who screamed god is great. he was wearing an undershirt and tr
